COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

Students of Odom Elementary School were given a special weather lesson Wednesday morning.

First Alert Meteorologist Andrew Gorton took the storm tracker to the school.

First and fourth-grade students learned about the water cycle and how hurricanes, tornadoes.

Students toured the storm tracker, asked questions about the weather and talked about severe weather safety.

"We need a safe place to be safe so the tornado won’t hit us," said first grade student Emiliano.

 "We go in the hall in our house, that’s the safest place I think," said fourth-grade student Adrian.

One student described what she does during a tornado drill at the school.

"We put our hands over our head and put our heads on our knees," said fourth-grade student Rylee.
